[ LifeSiteNews ] Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the Democrat presidential primary out of a presumption that he would be a more formidable challenger to President Donald Trump than the other candidates. But newly unearthed details about an old lawsuit against the billionaire threaten to further undermine whatever viability he may have had.
The Telegraph reports on the details of a 1997 sex discrimination lawsuit against Bloomberg by former employee Sekiko Sakai Garrison. She alleges that he made a number of disparaging comments about her pregnancy and preborn child, as well as telling her he “would do you in a second” if she looked like another woman he pointed out to her.
Garrison, a former sales executive with Bloomberg’s company, said that when she informed the mayor she was pregnant he disdainfully reacted, “Great! Number 16!” (in reference to his overall number of pregnant employees) and suggested that she “kill it.”
Bloomberg denied making the abortion remarks and settled the suit in 2000, but has acknowledged some inapprporiate comments about women more generally.
